love

Continuing with our series which is based on inspiring words written by Max Lucado and noted in his book God’s Inspirational Promises, Max shares with us the importance of truth and love.  I hope you enjoy his message on truth and love.
The single most difficult pursuit is truth and love.
That sentence is grammatically correct. I know every English teacher would like to pluralize it to read: The most difficult pursuits are those of truth and love. But that’s not what I mean to say.
Love is a difficult pursuit.
Truth is a tough one, too.
But put them together, pursue truth and love at the same time and hang on baby, you’re in for the ride of your life.
Love in truth. Truth in love.  Never one at the expense of the other. Never the embrace of love without the torch of truth. Never the heat of truth without the warmth of love…
To pursue both is our singular task.
Prayer
God of heaven, we see your hand stretching as far as the east is from the west. Put your hands and your arms around us and embrace, us Father. Then help us to stretch out our hands and arms to a world that desperately needs your love-and ours.
